Charity Korfball Tournament!
Have fun while raising money for charity this June with a Korfball tournament! Georgia Smith is fundraising to climb Mt Kenya to raise money for the charity Dig Deep, a water sanitation charity working in vulnerable areas of Kenya. She is organising a Korfball tournament on Saturday 8th June to do so! It’s £2 to take part, the rules will be explained on the day and there will be prizes for the winning team. She will be organising teams of mixed ability so why not sign up! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up by 2nd June!
GOT TO DANCE
Speaking of Charity, just taking a moment to plug another great cause. LuDans are raising money for Mind and the Burchill Trust, as well as for their own competitions with a dance competition! That’s right, they’re asking for societies and sports teams (I’m looking at you, Furness FC) to nominate a few people to pick a song, a dance style and let LuDanS teach you a routine that you will perform for the chance to be crowned GOT TO DANCE WINNERS 2019! For all information, go to the event page. How exciting!!!
And that’s it for this week, folks! Well done to everyone who has finished (or is still finishing) their exams! Remember – nominate yourself for BY-ELECTIONS!! See you next week!
